Social Media Designer

Kim manages our Instagram account and creates many of the photos and images that we share, as well as helping out in the lab or wherever needed. Her home garden is almost exclusively for supporting our pollinators, and she loves hand-raising Black Swallowtail and Monarch butterflies...from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to each one's epic release into the wild!

Victoria helps to keep the lab flowing smoothly; filling orders, pressing tinctures, and producing products for Prairie Star. She is currently studying herbal medicine and is working towards becoming a Clinical Herbalist for her career. She loves diving into photography, folklore, and any outdoor activities in her free time. Victoria will often be found in her garden, especially in the midst of rainstorms.
